So when I got this device I went to root it and found there's not very good documentation on what to do to get root and recovery installed so after many boot loops and reinstall of firmware here is what I did to gain root and TWRP and have a stable environment. You will need to use ADB & Fastboot commands please install either this : https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790 or https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979 or you can install from here: https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools. you will also need the Motorola drivers located here: https://support.motorola.com/us/en/solution/MS88481. Once you have obtained these you can proceed with the bootloader unlock. I have the unlocked version of the Motorola G7 Power so I was able to fallow the sets here: https://support.motorola.com/us/en/bootloader/unlockyourdeviceb. If you have a different variant I'm not sure if your able to unlock your bootloader please try and let me know in this thread. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU SCREW YOUR DEVICE UP OR FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE

Bootloader unlock steps:
1. On your device go to Settings and to System, Then About phone and click " Build Number " until you unlock developer options.
2. Back out one step and click the Advanced tab and then click " Developer Options ".
3. Once in developer options " OEM Unlocking " turn off " Automatic Updates " and enable "USB Debugging".
4. Once you have done USB Debugging open the start button type "CMD" and open a command prompt.
5. Once in command prompt type " adb devices " make sure you authorize the pc on the phone. then type in command prompt " adb reboot bootloader "
6. Once in bootloader type in command prompt " fastboot oem get_unlock_data " from here fallow the directions on the Motorola Bootloader Unlocking page: https://support.motorola.com/us/en/bootloader/unlockyourdevice
7. Take the number given to you by Motorola and type in command prompt " fastboot oem unlock CODE FROM MOTO " then enter the same command again and your device will be bootloader unlocked.

TWRP & Magisk install:
This is where I found it to be difficult to get things right either I would bootloop or I wouldn't be able to unencrypt my sd card in TWRP so I couldn't read things right all sorts of dumb issues. All the files I used are attached so please let me know if this works as well as it did for me. Please download the TWRP .img file it was too large to attach: https://dl.twrp.me/ocean/ Also make sure that your command prompt is in the directory of your stored files.

Here are a list of commands to get TWRP and install Root please be in bootloader mode to start this process.
1. fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-2-ocean.img
2. In TWRP go to the wipe option and select the format and type " yes " once it has done that go back to the main TWRP page by hitting the home bottom and select Reboot and select Reboot Bootloader.
3. fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-2-ocean.img
4. Once in TWRP adb push twrp-installer-3.3.1-2-ocean.zip /tmp/ then click install and navigate to the /tmp folder and install the TWRP .zip file
5. After you install TWRP do this : adb push Magisk-v20.1(20100).zip /tmp/ then navigate to your /tmp folder and install Magisk .zip file
6. After you install magisk you can reboot the system and let it sit it might loop once or twice but it will boot. I did the force encrypt disable with the attached zip file then i rebooted.

Also I found it best to do this with a fresh installed firmware that hasn't been booted yet I downloaded the firmware/ROM from here: https://mirrors.lolinet.com/firmware/moto/ocean/official/RETUS/ here is a list of commands to copy and paste into command prompt please make sure your device is in bootloader/ fastboot mode.

Well i messed it up some how. my phone would boot loop three times and then go back to the twrp screen. after 30 minutes of messing with it i gave up and factory reset it via the adb platform tools.

Got it to work but had to start fresh as said at very bottom using retus version, I did all that then step by step but i booted once just to enable usb debugging of course, already had oem unlock but then right back into recovery flashed magisk and disable dm verity both back to back before reboot and all went fine cant get ota ofc but surely better roms will start showing up soon and I wont give a crap about stock anymore.

I am gonna check one thing I had it all working another method before but after installing something thru magisk it soft bricked I think it was vanced youtube maybe also cant seem to find a way to get vipre to work sadly.

Question

Does this method bypass the screen lock password on the phone? I have this phone that is locked with a passcode, so I can't easily get it into developer mode. Sorry, I'm a total newbie to this but am trying to learn. Thanks in advance!

A tip for linux users. If you are getting "< waiting for any device >" after the "fastboot oem get_unlock_data". Ctrl-c to exit the command. Su to root and then "fastboot oem get_unlock_data".

I give up, SIM stopped working after multiple failed attempts at installing Custom ROMs, even so much as installing Magisk+force encrypt disable brings up Factory data reset screen. Now my SIM doesn't even work on another stock phone for some reason, since the ban that apparently exists, if applied, should be IMEI-only, and somehow it works on a Custom ROM+Magisk device of mine. Going back to stock with locked bootloader I guess
SIM stopped working on G7 Power = neither SIM from two different carriers, one that's never been on a rooted/unlocked bootloader phone, don't even show up as a grey signal icon, tried both slots.
My SIM not working on another stock phone (G7 Play) = not recognized at all, but at least it recognizes there's a SIM card in there, grey signal.
Working fine on G5 with Magisk, Xposed and OmniROM

So maybe I banned both the chip (?) and IMEI, but still for some reason it works on another bootloader unlocked phone

From what I've been able to tell, the SIM cards are locked via IMEI (from MetroPCS I assume?, cause that's what they do), and will appear invalid, but should show the phone number in the settings. It should also say out of service, unless inserted into the phone that it originally belonged to.

I have an E5 Play, and unlocked it using the device unlock app built-in from MetroPCS, after 3 months of service (maybe 6 I forget). After that, I could throw in other SIMs. But the phones those SIMs would come out of, they couldn't read the metro card. They said invalid. But it still recognized it was a card, and showed phone number in settings. Said out of service.

After realizing this, I found out you can change devices in the website real quick, and that should solve the "invalid SIM" issue.

Possibly some custom ROMs lack what restricts all this in the first place, and the Sim must be valid because it's a SIM, in service, and the proper network. No clue there. What carrier are you on?

The thing is, "stopped working" literally, it doesn't have out of service, phone number, no signal, not even the "emergency calls only", heck I can't even find my IMEI in settings nor *#0606#, I think that's what's causing the problem. This SIM also came from that Custom ROM device (originally inserted there, but bought as a standalone data plan)
and will appear invalid, but should show the phone number in the settings. It should also say out of service, unless inserted into the phone that it originally belonged to.
If you're talking about how it showed up like that on the G7 Play it used to work just fine in there, and no, that's not the original phone, it's just a phone I used to test if my SIM was still working

But it still recognized it was a card, and showed phone number in settings. Said out of service.
In this phone, G7 Power, it doesn't even recognize a card is in the tray anymore (unlike the G7 Play which at least knows there's one and G5+Custom ROM, in which it works)

Not that it's gonna help much but OI (Brazil), and if that's on Motorola support page my G7 Power is main phone already.

So, I have successfully rooted my Moto G7 Power by using the method above, but i tried not doing the "format data" and fortunately, I have rooted my phone. For the 1st attempt, I kinda soft-bricked my device by doing the steps briefly, my phone would always bootloop back to recovery mode, but after not doing the "format data" step, it led to a success. So for anyone who are currently experiencing bootloop, flash the stock firmware to your phone and root it again by using the method above but don't do the "format data" step. (flashing the stock firmware would not re-lock the bootloader, so you can try to root your phone again easily.)

I mean, that's entirely on you, the command is wrong. Remove the first 3 words. And check the name of your Magisk ZIP (and location)

same thing as always.. no matter what lol
If it's same thing as always then you're still using "adb push magisk adb push Magisk-v20.1(20100).zip /tmp/". There's no "but I'm not", if it's indeed the same error as before you're messing up on the syntax. Make sure you've put Magisk inside Minimal ADB folder, rename it to magisk.zip and run "adb push magisk.zip /tmp/"

    I give up, SIM stopped working after multiple failed attempts at installing Custom ROMs, even so much as installing Magisk+force encrypt disable brings up Factory data reset screen. Now my SIM doesn't even work on another stock phone for some reason, since the ban that apparently exists, if applied, should be IMEI-only, and somehow it works on a Custom ROM+Magisk device of mine. Going back to stock with locked bootloader I guess
    SIM stopped working on G7 Power = neither SIM from two different carriers, one that's never been on a rooted/unlocked bootloader phone, don't even show up as a grey signal icon, tried both slots.
    My SIM not working on another stock phone (G7 Play) = not recognized at all, but at least it recognizes there's a SIM card in there, grey signal.
    Working fine on G5 with Magisk, Xposed and OmniROM

    So maybe I banned both the chip (?) and IMEI, but still for some reason it works on another bootloader unlocked phone

    From what I've been able to tell, the SIM cards are locked via IMEI (from MetroPCS I assume?, cause that's what they do), and will appear invalid, but should show the phone number in the settings. It should also say out of service, unless inserted into the phone that it originally belonged to.

    I have an E5 Play, and unlocked it using the device unlock app built-in from MetroPCS, after 3 months of service (maybe 6 I forget). After that, I could throw in other SIMs. But the phones those SIMs would come out of, they couldn't read the metro card. They said invalid. But it still recognized it was a card, and showed phone number in settings. Said out of service.

    After realizing this, I found out you can change devices in the website real quick, and that should solve the "invalid SIM" issue.

    Possibly some custom ROMs lack what restricts all this in the first place, and the Sim must be valid because it's a SIM, in service, and the proper network. No clue there. What carrier are you on?

    I had this issue as well. copy the stock rom files into the same folder as the adb and fastboot tools then use the powershell terminal with the following commands to re-flash the modem firmware:

    fastboot erase modemst1
    fastboot erase modemst2
    fastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn

    Cleared my issued right up. Also worth noting that I reflashed my phone with the stock retail rom before doing it.
